Spy Secrets That Can Save Your Life: A Former CIA Officer Reveals Safety and Survival Techniques to Keep You and Your  Family Protected
Spy Secrets That Can Save Your Life: A Former CIA Officer Reveals Safety and Survival Techniques to Keep You and Your Family Protected by Jason Hanson
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

Interesting and informative, but a loud and distracting sales pitch far more than a helpful book. Innumerable references to the author’s website, and exhortations to view his videos etc., detracted from any true learning from the book.

It is telling, for an ex-spy from the Ceee Ieeye Aaaa, that the author fails to adequately mask details of an incident while casually changing the name of a victim to ‘Danny.’ It does not take much to determine that this particular incident the author uses to support his messages is the car-jacking by the Tsarnaev brothers that eventually led to their kill/capture. But this too may have been an insidious effort by the author, to raise the profile of his work, without due copyright credits given or permissions obtained, to further sensationalize his delivery.

There are numerous editing errors in the book. Overall, a book of low quality, one that is primarily an advertisement for the author’s pecuniary schemes exploiting his government training.
